It's been over a week now and MyFamily.com and RootsWeb.com are still unavailable. Several of Ancestry.com's websites were hit with a DOS attack and many of them have been restored but MyFamily.com and RootsWeb.com are still down.
So if you've been trying to connect to either, you're have to wait longer. Ancestry.com has not issued a statement as to how long they expect the sites to be down.
This affects all of personal genealogy websites on both MyFamily.com and RootsWeb.com and the mail lists and message boards and more on RootsWeb.com.
